Once referred to as ‘Shell Shock” in the first world war the limited understanding of this complex condition led to some soldiers branded as cowards and shot!
Our understanding has developed greatly and more since the Hillsborough Disaster, when the word trauma was used and we became aware of PTSD.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has been around, but never fully recognised or understand. We are now gaining an understanding of this important condition that seems to dominate those working in the areas it has high prevalence.
As we evolve in science we realise how complex mental health is. This course will develop your understanding and beyond. Whether you work in the field of mental health, studying a degree or just interested, you will learn about the complexities of PTSD.

My final assignment was marked within 3 days and I am over the moon with my result of distinction and feedback from tutor...

When people know you have a disabilit...

The end of module questions give me the revision i need to make sure it sunk in. I’m pleased with what I have achieved on these courses and would recommend them.
My Animal Psychology Diploma was a well written and informative course. Easy to follow and complete. Great that it can be completed in your own time, allows for day to day activities to be undertaken and study to fit in when it can.
I have just completed a Reflexology Diploma Course and also took the exam on completion. The course itself was excellent and in particular I liked the test at the end of each lesson. It refreshes your memory of what you have been studying. The Anatomy and Physiology was the hardest part of the course but with plenty of studying it is achievable. The final exam which you pay for if you want to t...
